Delhi govt asks HoDs to deduct half-day leave of officers who miss public hearing
Last year, Kejriwal had ordered all the ministers and officers except field staff to meet the public without the appointment in their offices for an hour on weekdays.
The Delhi government has asked all department heads to deduct half-day causal leave of officers who do not attend a public hearing meeting on weekdays and could not explain their absence satisfactorily.
"In case of emergency/field visit duty assigned to officers, a link officer should be present to attend the public grievances between 10 am and 11 am," the department said in a recent written communication to HODs.
"In case of non-satisfactory explanation received from erring officers, HODs may deduct 1/2 day CL (casual leave) and the same be intimated to administrative reforms department for kind perusal of competent authority," it added.
Thereafter, the chief minister had written to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal requesting him to hold 'Janata Darbar' on the lines of his government and meet the people without the appointment as he is directly responsible for many subjects of public dealing like the police and the DDA.
